Introduction

This extension allows you to migrate your shopdata from VirtueMart to Magento. The migration using Vm2Mage is simple and efficient, but because of various parameters and selection-methods you have full control over which data are migrated to Magento. Vm2Mage is the ideal way to switch over from VirtueMart to Magento.

  • Get this

Vm2Mage uses a component within Joomla! and an extra module within Magento, which communicate with eachother through XML-RPC. For the setup and other tasks, the tutorials on Yireo.com help you out.

The software comes in three paid versions: A package without support, a package with support, and a package with installation support. All packages include the same software.

Vm2Mage is created by the same people who invented MageBridge, which offers a visual bridge between Joomla! and Magento. You do not need MageBridge to use Vm2Mage.


Great Extension

Vm2Mage works fantastic.

I imported all of my stuff successfully.

Special thanks to support team.

I strongly recommend this extension.


Buyers Beware!


Posted on 15 August 2011

Yireo have a strange pricing system where you can either pay $29 for the cheapest package or $207



You get the same software but for $29 you get ZERO support.



I didn't realize until too late that that means even forum posts requesting assistance will get ignored!



Who in their right mind would pay an additional $180 purely on the chance that you might need support for this? I certainly didn't and expected the installation to work smoothly.



What type of company refuses even forum support to a paid customer who has no other choice in getting support except to 'upgrade' for an additional $180?



The installation and setup instructions are reasonably clear but omit key steps that, when missed will result in problems. I had a number of issues with the migration including:



- Images were set as inactive unless I manually visited every individual product in the catalog to activate them!



- Products when clicked on generated an error message.



After a week I ended up manually migrating the CSV files using Joomla and Magentos Import / Export feature and therefore wasted $29.



This was a terrible buying experience. Sure their page does say that they offer no support for their $29 package but it's well-hidden in their comparison table and it's something I overlooked and expect most other people would overlook too when ordering.



The problem with this type of technical extension is that it requires troubleshooting with both Magento AND Joomla so there's double the chance of a problem.



If you really do need assistance migrating products from VM then don't gamble on their $29 script working without problems. Also don't waste $210 on their supported package when for $99 you can buy far better supported and more feature-rich scripts elsewhere.

Owner's reply: This is an understandable review. As you comment, you get ZERO support with the lowest priced version. There are 3 versions and they differ not in source-code or functioality, but only in support. We thought this information was clearly mentioned, as the package features are listed in the same table as the pricing, but clearly this still needs work. The reason why we have choosen for such a pricing scheme, is simple: The basic version used to be free, and we still got offensive replies by Joomla! users who could not get this to work, and were blaming us for creating wrong software - while in most cases, not Joomla! or Vm2Mage, but Magento was causing issues. Still, 20 Euro (or 29 dollar) is a price too low to support Magento. So this review might give us some insight as to whether to remove the basic version altogether, and only offer Vm2Mage for a price that matches the average of price of Magento extensions (around 300 dollar, which is cheap considering Magento requires a solid investment).

Looking at the specific problems that this user was facing, these problems were not occurring for any other users, neither in our tests, nor in real-life. So there must have been something specific in this Magento installation, causing issues. Unfortunately, neither we nor the Magento developer charged with this migration was able to solve these issues in considerable time.

A general advise still stands: If you can migrate all your VirtueMart data to Magento using simple CSV-files, why spend money on this extension?

Great product


Posted on 28 May 2010

The guys at Yireo have produced an excellent addition to their software suite. Vm2Mage works fantastically. I just imported over 1000 categories and over 3000 products from Virtuemart to Magento and it brought all the data accross including the images. This was a lifesaver for me as you can imagine. I had some configuration issues to start with but the guys at Yireo helped out and replied back to my request very quickly. Cant recommend this software enough.

Yireo SSL Redirection

The SSL Redirect plugin is able to redirect non-secure HTTP-pages to secure HTTPS-pages, and back again. Which pages need to be served through SSL and which not, can be configured through plugin parameters: You can select manually Joomla! Menu-Items to which SSL should be applied, or you can choose Joomla! components (like the user-component) to which it should be applied, or you can add custom URLs in a textarea. The plugin takes care of the rest. The Joomla! Global Configuration allows you to configure SSL, but if a visitor enters a Joomla! page through non-HTTPS, this visitor is not automatically redirected. Also you can't enable SSL for just some pages, while all other pages are served through regular HTTP. While the Apache htaccess file can be configured to contain RewriteRules for this, it is much more complicated and error-prawn. This is the main reason why the YireoTM SSL Redirect plugin was developed.

The ScriptMerge plugin is a Joomla! System Plugin that merges all the CSS stylesheets and JavaScript files on your Joomla! page into one single file, which means that the browser only needs to download one single file for CSS and one single file for JavaScript instead of dozens of small files. This decreases the number of HTTP requests and therefor optimizes the bandwidth of your site. In other words: It speeds up the site from the perspective of the visitor. But Script Merge offers more than just merging and compressing files. It also adds support for WebP, data URIs (using images not as separate files, but as data-streams within CSS), HTML-compression and third party minification-libraries. The backend-options allow you to be extremely flexible: You can exclude specific CSS- and JS-files, but also exclude specific pages (components, Menu-Items). This is one of the most powerful tools you will need to optimize your Joomla! site.

With Dynamic404 you can redirect 404-pages to other URLs easily. This way, visitors will never get an annoying "404 Not Found" page anymore, but they will be redirected to the right page. Alternatively you can disable this redirection, and just enrich the 404-page with a list of possible matches for the current 404-error. The Dynamic404 component determines which page is the closest match by looking at Menu-Items and articles to find a matching alias. Alternatively, you can configure redirects yourself from within the Joomla! Administrator. This way you can even fix URL-typos made by your visitors. Also, the Dynamic404 component can be extended with Joomla! plugins that allow you to search for matches within the logic of other third party extensions. When good matches are found, you can determine yourself what to do: You can display an optimized 404-error page to your visitors which shows a listing of all the matches, plus links to your site search. Or you can transform the 404-error into a 301 or 307 redirect to direct the visitor to the right page. Despite what some SEO-experts have claimed, Dynamic404 will give you a higher ranking when the automatic redirection of Dynamic404 is enabled: In case of a 404-error, that 404-status never reaches the visitor, but it is transformed into a valid redirect. This makes Dynamic404 vital when migrating between major Joomla! versions (Joomla! 1.5 to Joomla! 3 for example), or when migrating com_content to your favorite CCK.

Piwik is not only powerful because it offers a self-hosted replacement for GoogleAnalytics.

MageBridge acts as a bridge between the Joomla! CMS and the Magento e-commerce shop. It allows for displaying Magento content within Joomla! through a component but also adds further integration using various modules. Underneath, plugins make sure the two systems are integrated as well: User profiles and login credentials are synchronized, and user records are automatically created from both sides. MageBridge ships with Single Sign On (SSO) and Single Sign In (SSI), and integrates products and categories into the regular Joomla! search. The Content Plugin even adds more power to this total. ** Complete bridging solution ** As of yet, MageBridge is the most complete bridging solution that brings Magento to Joomla!. All areas of integration are covered, including visual integration, search integration, user integration, and much much more. ** Combined theming ** The whole suite enables you to integrate Magento within Joomla! quickly, but the flexible architecture also allows you to achieve any setup you like. Both Magento theme and Joomla! template are combined in one single page. Out of the box, this makes things like nice without much effort. When optimizing the themes, tuning could be done on both sides (Magento theme or Joomla! template) or one side only. ** Multiple extensions, dual licensing - obviously** The extensions are divided into two types: First of all there are Joomla! extensions (a component, modules and plugins) licensed under the GNU/GPL, and secondly a Magento module licensed under a custom End User License Agreement. Communication between Joomla! and Magento is done through JSON and JSON-RPC, therefor all extensions comply to the licensing scheme of the system they're running on. ** Event forwarding ** MageBridge offers various way to extend the normal behavior. Besides from regular Joomla! plugins that can integrate with the MageBridge API, plugins can also listen to specific events coming from Magento (a concept called "event forwarding"). ** Connectors ** Also MageBridge uses connectors to connect the bridging functionality to third party Joomla! extensions. One group - store connectors - can be used to load a specific Magento store on runtime by looking at a certain condition in Joomla!. This is used to make MageBridge compatible with multi-lingual components like Nooku and Joom!Fish. Another group - product connectors - allow you to sell a Joomla! product through Magento. Using this mechanism, you could sell for instance Community Builder profiles or JomSocial karma points. ** What you get ** Members get access to a large amount of whitepapers and tutorials, that explain the usage, administration and extendibility of MageBridge more thoroughly.

SimpleLists is a pure Joomla! MVC-component for displaying "lists". A list is handled as a category containing items. Each item can be displayed using a title, a text and a picture, while this picture can point to a certain URL. This makes the component ideal for displaying a logo-page, a portfolio-page, a FAQ page, a custom blog-page or a peoplebook. The component is shipped with different views, allowing output in a simple table, output using tags, and output for just the picture. Most importantly: Each list can be configured through the "Parameter" section of the appropriate menu-item (in the Menu Manager). Some people just use SimpleLists for the smooth graphical effects it comes along with. That's fine, but SimpleLists has also made firm choices regarding the non-usage of Joomla! articles and Joomla! categories. If you would like those smooth graphical effects to be combined with Joomla! articles and Joomla! categories, you're NOT looking for SimpleLists. If you want to know, check out the SimpleLists FAQ.

Google offers the new WebP image-format as a way to decrease the bandwidth of your site. You can convert your JPEG and GIF images to the WebP-format, resulting in upto 40% less bandwidth. While WebP is actually only supported by the Chrome browser, it is already a vital and reliable bandwidth-saving tool, simply because more and more people choose for Chrome (currently already 36% of all internet users). Note that you will need to install the Google Webp "cwebp" binary on your server, for this extension to work. In general, if you are using a shared hosting site, forget about this. If you are owning your own server, install this as soon as possible: Bandwidth costs money.
